PRAY: Prayer for Those Who Need to be Rescued
Rescued is the word you brought to mind today. So many of those I love need rescuing:
The one in a valiant cancer battle
The one who keeps making poor choices
The one whose health teeters on the brink
The one poised for change—wise or unwise
The one overwhelmed by financial troubles
The one trapped in years of marital hurt
The one crushed by abuse
The one whose pain no one hears
The one who cries for others
The one who doesn’t know where to turn.
I lift each one before You, my Lord, because I know You can meet each one at each need-point. You came to rescue each of us. Your name is Deliverer, Healer, Savior, Strength.
Thank You for pulling these from darkness to light, from defeat to victory. Thank You for loving them more than I do.
I stand as Your servant, and You are my King—AMEN.
Since this is one of those prayers that applies to everyone, I decided to write it out. I hope you’ll add your prayers to mine.
I’m back to blogging after my Christmas break turned into a dual bronchitis and finish-the-manuscript break. I’m coughing less and catching up on other writing now that I’ve submitted my most recent book project.
How may I pray for you in 2014? Leave a comment below or email me through the “contact” link. I’ll be honored to lift you before Him.
